BOSTON -- Despite his team emerging victors by an ugly 88-87 margin in an overtime game, Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant sounded more impressed by the Celtics than his own team when asked if the two once great and now aging championship clubs mirrored one another.

"I don't know," said Bryant, who finished with 25 points on 24 shots. "They've got three Hall of Famers and a fourth one coming. That don't look too familiar to me over here."

Not only did Bryant sound off about his own teammates, but he pulled no punches on the topics of New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, Duke freshman Austin Rivers and New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin (particularly priceless stuff), among other subjects thrown his way. The following are highlights from the Black Mamba's postgame interview.
